Sunday’s French Ligue 1 action features an exciting clash between PSG and Nimes. The defending champions were remarkable during the last season and scored at least two goals in every fixture, which is a record for the French league. During the summer, ‘The Parisians’ were very active on the transfer market and attracted Abdou Diallo, Idrissa Gueye, Pablo Sarabia and Ander Herrera.
Nimes had an exciting first season in Ligue 1 after their returning. ‘Les Crocodiles’ finished in ninth place and scored 57 goals. As expected, after the solid performance, many clubs were interested in the players of the team. Several essential figures left Nimes, including Teji Savanier and Jordan Ferri.
It will be hard for Nimes to repeat the last season’s performance, but at least for now they look capable of saving their spot in Ligue 1. PSG have the best team in France and should win with ease. The absence of Neymar weakens ‘The Parisians’ attack, but the presence of Kylian Mbappé and Edinson Cavani guarantees goals for PSG.
During the last season, PSG won against Nimes with 3-0 at ‘Le Parc des Princes’, and I expect a similar result on Sunday. ‘The Parisians’ have scored at least three goals in the previous three clashes with ‘Les Crocodiles’.
